Top award for Harry

Harry Redknapp has been named Barclays Manager of the Season.

The award recognises our achievement of qualifying for the Champions League for the first time.

We secured a minimum finish of fourth place in the Premier League after beating Manchester City 1-0 at Eastlands on Wednesday night.

We could still finish third - we need to beat Burnley on Sunday and hope Fulham topple Arsenal at the Emirates.

The top managerial accolade in the Premier League was voted by the Barclays Awards Panel, which is made up of football’s governing bodies, the media and fans.

Harry is only the second manager since the formation of the Premier League in 1992-93 to win the award without winning the championship. George Burley was first to break the mould after Ipswich Town finished fifth in 2000-01.

"I'm delighted to receive the award but it's a team effort with Kevin (Bond), Joe (Jordan), Clive (Allen), Tony (Parks), Tim (Sherwood), Les (Ferdinand) and all the coaching and fitness staff.

"Really, I'm just part of the team.

"It's all down to the players and what they've achieved. It's down to them really and a real honour to receive it."
